Year 7 Admissions 2024 Entry

Slough Consortium 11+ arrangements for September 2024 entry

The Slough Consortium of Grammar Schools consists of Herschel Grammar School, Langley Grammar School, St Bernard’s Catholic Grammar School and Upton Court Grammar School. The purpose of the Consortium is to coordinate arrangements for entry to Year 7 through a common 11+ examination. 

We operate a shared 11+ entrance examination process using the same examination papers and common eligibility criteria. The 11+ examination for entry to Year 7 in September 2024 will be held on Saturday 16 September 2023.

11+ test provider from September 2023

The Slough Consortium of Grammar Schools has contracted with GL Assessment as the test provider for the 11+ examinations to be held in September 2023, 2024 and 2025.

The structure and format of the examinations from September 2023 will be similar to those used under the previous provider. Pupils will sit two test papers, with questions covering a combination of verbal and non-verbal reasoning, English and mathematics. All marking and standardisation will be carried out by the test provider.

The eligibility score will continue to be set at 111 on a standardised scale.  Pupils who score 111 or above will be in the top 35% of the cohort sitting the examination and will be considered eligible for consideration for a grammar school place should their parents apply on their behalf.

The Slough Consortium has its own contract with GL Assessment and there will be no sharing of 11+ scores with any other schools.

Parents are advised to read the information about the 11+ examination process which will be posted on the websites of each of the four grammar schools later this term, and should not rely on other sources which may not be accurate.

We encourage all parents interested in entering their child for the Slough Consortium 11+ examination this year to attend an online information event on Tuesday 25th April 2023. Further details will be available here shortly.

11+ Information Online Event for entry to Year 7 in September 2024

Tuesday 25th April 2023 at 5:00pm and 6:15pm

During this online event we will explain the Slough Consortium 11+ entrance examination process in detail. This event is for parents only. It is not suitable for children, and it does not provide specific details about any particular school. It is purely to help you as parents to understand the 11+ registration and testing process, and will last for a maximum of one hour (there will be two identical events offered at 5:00pm and 6:15pm, to offer the opportunity for as many parents as possible to access the information).

The event will be on Tuesday 25th April using Zoom and you must reserve a spot to attend. The first part will be a live presentation by John Constable, Headteacher of Langley Grammar School on the 11+ process. This will be followed by a question and answer session via the chat function with the Headteachers of all four grammar schools.

Following the event a ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ document will be produced and posted on the schools’ websites along with a recording of the presentation.

Please register for a ticket here or at the link below and you will be sent joining instructions for the online meeting. Please only register for ONE of the meetings.
